How does your garden grow?
With silver bells, and cockle shells,
And pretty maids all in a row...

Metaphor for Feeling

Just when I thought hope was dying. 
Just when "The End" looked so near. 
The beginning of something new starts to sprout. 
Emerging from a broken shell towards the sky.

Chasing sunbeam trails

Once, beautiful sunsets happened everyday
Pots of golden rays rolled down
From the arms of rainbows.
Some days, blankets of grey knit themselves
Around that wishing well I threw my coin into.
Some day, that magical bean will reach the heavens.
Why, the curve of my head
Fits perfectly, the curve of your shoulder.

Wish I could be, part of that world.

I think I'll plant chilies next.

Jack and the beanstalk

One of my friends gave me seeds a while ago and I didn't have a chance to plant them until a few weeks ago. This is what has emerged. I have actually forgotten what plant she said it would grow into. The surprise of watching something unfold - I hope it's something edible.

Purple dresses

Tailor fitted perfection -
Purple dresses
Fed by moonlight
Dancing with uneven feet. 

Be careful with my heart

My cactus needs a new home. 
It has outgrown this one. 
Drowned in dew
And abnormal winter rains.
Yearning for spots of sun.
